Re: Freedom of speech

I couldn't read much of the article, but the ACLU has always been loyal to protecting the First Amendment. It's a shame that many within the organization are attempting to steer the boat exclusively to the left... The racists, misogynists, and bigots have rights under the First Amendment as well. Th...

Re: Southern Boarder

The current governor of Texas is pledging to build the wall in Texas with Texan taxpayer dollars. That's fine by me. I can get behind that. Are you a Texan? Do you own any businesses in Texas which employs migrant workers? What problem is the Texan governor addressing by doing this? I am not a Texa...

Re: Southern Boarder

I'm not in favor of a remarkably effective wall metaphor that cost billions of taxpayer dollars (since Mexico really isn't going to be paying for it) and achieves zero in the real world.

Re: Media bias

Trump did praise Russia, and constantly mentioned Russia, which constantly kept it in the news cycle. What he said publicly and what his policies actually were, like so many other things, were often at odds. The nonconservative media outlets put what he said on air (some of it was was before he beca...

Please, explain how firing on civilian targets is self-defense.
Doesn't it bother you that Israel is firing on civilian targets on a daily basis?
Yes. I'm not exclusively on Israel's side.

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Classic 'self defence is making things worse' victim blaming. Please, explain how firing on civilian targets is self-defense. I don't know how someone could argue that the escalation in violence isn't making things worse for Palestinians... Over 200 dead, nearly 2,000 wounded so far. This isn't eve...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

They are literally being killed. What are they supposed to do? Not what they are doing now. What a helpful non-answer. Not indiscriminately firing over 3000 rockets at strictly civilian populations within Israel. Not launching them from within their own cities, effectively trying to use Palestinian...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

The single state solution surely would have it's hiccups, and definitely seems like a non-starter for this generation of Palestinians. But, really... Is there a better (feasible) option? The two state solution has never been a viable option. The demands on both sides have been unreasonable (on purp...

To put it another way, Flash, the rockets from Gaza are a desperate response from a people who have been kicked and beaten and abused and starved and murdered and imprisoned by a force of zealous settler colonists over the last several decades.

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Lots of those slamming Israel for war crimes have apparently forgotten targeting civilian populations is a war crime as well. Hamas does this regularly. They even manage to intentionally fire the rockets within their own cities, increasing the likelihood of collateral damage. Israel isn't without bl...
